Brussels to adopt whimsical new street names

The Guardian: Ceci n’est pas une rue: Brussels to adopt whimsical new street names

In Brussels, the home of surrealism, city officials have given their blessing to rename a street in homage to one of René Magritte’s best-known paintings.

Ceci n’est pas une rue (This is not a street) is inspired by The Treachery of Images, painted in 1929 by the Belgian artist, who lived in Brussels for decades.

It was one of nearly 1,400 suggestions made by the public in response to an initiative to generate interest in a regeneration project in a former industrial district in the north of the city.

Awesome. There should be transparent street signs.
